I've been rewatching the Justice League cartoon and Batman TAS. I forgot how great they were, although neither holds a candle up to Young Justice or Spectacular Spider-man.

What both BtAS and Justice League are way better than Young Justice. Spectular Spiderman is good but it doesn't hold a candle either

WAT!

Meh, While BtAS and JL are both good, they don't have the powerful human relationship dynamics Young Justice and Spectacular do. Also, the latter two also seem to tackle mature themes more often, while BtAS and JL I feel can occasionally get a bit childish. Greg Weisman also has a knack for pulling really good twists that make sense, but you don't see coming at all.

Actually, since I started rewatching, I realized BtAS wasn't even that dark until Two-Face pt. 1 and 2.

This show holds up MUCH better than I expected. It's pretty funny, has a charming art style, and really makes use of the having to pick between good or evil plot point without breaking the flow. I liked the pilot a lot! Animation can be very stiff sometimes though. I wanna watch more now, I read Nickelodeon has the full series on their site and season one is on iTunes, I'll have to check it out.

Yeah, that was a great show. I unfortunately can't find any other episode besides the pilot, which is a shame because the show got so much better. The writing was good, the concept was original, there was absolutely nothing like it before and there's nothing like it now.

Me I like the idea of the Loony Toons used in more mundane situational humor like sienfield.

WAT!

Looney Toons is probably the only old cartoon series I can't think of that could pull it off, since those kind of shows tend to rely on the difference in personalities, and Looney Toons has a varied and surprisingly well defined cast. Some of them had to be altered, but most of them make sense. Lola is the only radical departure I've noticed so far, and honestly Lola never really had much of a personality before, so it's nice seeing her as a relatively memorable character. Sure, it's a shock seeing them in suburbia and driving cars (Bugs' terrible sense of direction worked a lot better when he was tunneling underground, IMO), but for the most part it still feels like the Looney Toons cast, albeit in a very different set up. (and really, I don't know if the classic genius of Looney Toons in its heydey could ever be properly emulated, so I'm glad they tried something different)

Yeah, Nick doesn't have it on their site after all and only sites that do have it are sketchy streaming sites. It's a real shame.

Rewatching Reboot. I have the whole series on DVD.
Dreading the day that I once again see that cliffhanger at the end of season 4. "Prepare yourselves.... for the hunt!"
...... and we never knew what happened after that!

Since I loved Spectacular and YJ so much, I decided to check out Gargoyles tonight (same creator). So far I've just seen the first episode, but call me impressed. Greg Weisman is a really good writer for this stuff. Definitely kept me on my toes the whole time.

The first two seasons of Gargoyles are good stuff, and definitely worth watching.

However, the creator left after that because Disney wanted to take it in a different direction than he wanted to, and season 3 noticeably suffers because of that.

So basically Greg Weisman is the Valve of cartoons. He can't count to 3. I wonder if Star Wars: Rebels will get to Season 3 with him still on board.

Moste of it is aviable on DVD. Too bad Disney's cartoons went downhill during the ninties. Disney should release the rest of their shows on dvd/bray. I got over half of the walt disney treasures dvds ^^ strangely its the ones i'm missing wich turned out to be moste expensive nowday,

It was...eh, okay. Nothing special. Kind of on level with American Dragon, maybe a bit worse, especially in terms of characters and animation. Definitely no Jackie Chan Adventures or Shaolin Showdown, though.

After reading the newer Ultimate Spider Man comics, I really wish Marvel would greenlight an Ultimate Spider Man series based on the new protagonist Miles Morales. I mean, not that I dislike Peter, but I personally think Miles is a great breath of fresh air and a distinct, but still amusing and relatable, character when compared to his predecessor.

I dunno; that's just my two cents.

Is anybody else hyped up for Lakewood Plaza Turbo? It's supposed to come out later this year.

The pilot is on YouTube, however we don't know much about it yet.

I'll post my friend code once I have a better team ready for Pokemon X, for battling.
